But also forays into the Spanish repertoire of ancient music and Italian songwriting from the 17th century to the 1960s and some rare pages by Nino Rota, significant tributes on the centenary of the birth of György Ligeti and Luigi Nono, and an evening with the Arditti Quartet to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of its foundation.
The Rachmaninov cycle continues with Alexander Romanovsky and is joined by a Boccherini evening with Europa Galante.
The 'new generations' feature young but already established musicians such as Ettore Pagano, Javier Comesaña, Lukas Geniušas, and the Leonkoro Quartet.
